My apologies for not getting around and commenting on every one else's posts last week. It was a really crazy week at work plus our county fair week.
I didn't get a lot of pictures of fresh harvests, although I did pick small tomatoes, squash and snap beans.
I also got eggs. Several days last week I got really small eggs like the one on the left in the picture. I'm not positive yet if this is from one of the banties that has been molting and so not laying for awhile or if it's from one of my Buff Orpington pullets. The egg in the middle is one of the normal size banty eggs. The big egg on the right is from one of the Welsummers that I just picked up a couple of weeks ago.

My Buff Orpington pullet was 2nd in her class. She and her sisters should start laying any time between now and Halloween.
|Harley takes a bath|
Harley was especially happy to be home and to be able to take a bath! He's the ring leader of his group of ducks (the others are WH crossed with runner duck, but they were all hatched and raised together). I wish I'd had my camera out when I first put Harley back out in the pen. One of the other ducks from his group came up to him making soft noises and stood rubbing the top of their head under his chin, like, where have you been? I was so worried about you, glad you are home. It was really cute.
